wordpress2I am a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the Pennsylvania State University. I specialize in international relations and comparative politics. My research focuses on the external and domestic influences on autocratic regime survival, military politics, domestic sources of foreign policy, repression, and North Korea. My advisor was Joseph Wright.

My teaching interests involve comparative regimes and international relations. I taught classes in authoritarian regimes, national security policy, and international relations theory at Penn State.
